Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Malcolm X lived in difficult times - when some thought that black people were inferior to white people. But Malcolm believed that black people should stand up for their rights and he preached this belief everywhere he went. His message became popular because it was one of hope and pride. But it also became dangerous, because some people didn't agree with him. In 1965, one of these people shot and killed him. Even though his life was cut short by hatred, Malcolm X's ideas still affect people of all races. Here is his amazing story.

An ALA Notable Children's Book

Synopsis:

Describes the life, beliefs, and achievements of the controversial Black Muslim leader.
